Critical Findings Regarding Patient Care at Manorcare of South Holland From State Inspection Surveys Conducted at the Facility

According to the data gathered from the nursing home surveys conducted by the Illinois Department of Health and other survey agencies, there have been noticeable signs of abuse and neglect at Manorcare of South Holland, which can be construed as nursing home negligence. On examining the records, our nursing home attorneys discovered the following:

  • Failure to administer the prescribed formula for gastronomy tube feeding: “R20’s diet order includes an enteral feeding of 1.2% concentration at 75 ml/hr. and NPO (nothing by mouth). During the medication pass observation with E17, Nurse on 9/12/12 at 8:20 AM, R20 was noted receiving an enteral feeding of 1.5 % concentration per gastrostomy tube at 75 ml an hour, with 300 ml remaining. The container did not have a patient identifier, date and time started, the prescribed rate nor the name of the person who started the feeding. On 9/14/12 at 11:15 AM, E20, Registered Dietician explained that the difference in the formula concentrations is the number of calories per ml. E20, Registered Dietician said R20’s assessment for the 1.2% concentration was sufficient for R20’s caloric needs. E20 said that age, [DIAGNOSES REDACTED]. E20 stated that it is projected that R20’s tube feeding will be for long term. E20 said a feeding that meets the caloric needs with the least concentration of calories per ml is generally tolerated better by the digestive system over long periods of time.”
  • Failure to provide consistent supervision to residents at risk of falls: “On 9/14/12 at 12:00 PM, E21, Physical Therapist said that she performed the initial assessment for R15 but could not recall her very well. When reviewing the assessment, E21 stated that the documentation indicated that R15 was unable to sit upright on the edge of the bed without falling forward due to flexion. When asked about R15 sitting in a wheelchair, E21 stated that documentation indicated that R15 would require constant supervision when in a wheelchair. The incident report dated 8/17/12 indicates R15 was sitting in a wheelchair across from the nurse’s station.

On 9/13/12, 11:45 AM, E16(nurse) stated, “She was sitting directly across from the nurse’s station. We saw her bending forward from the waist and I jumped up, moved from behind the nurse’s station and she toppled over. ” E16 said there were other people present at the desk.”
  • Failure to provide timely incontinent care to residents with pressure ulcers: “Closed record review shows R4 was re-admitted to the facility on [DATE] with [DIAGNOSES REDACTED]. Nursing assessment dated [DATE] states R4 has very limited mobility, requiring extensive assistance for transfer, bed mobility and toileting. R4 is alert and oriented.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own.
★★★★★
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you.
★★★★★
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan!
★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial.
